debate. nixon was better in the second, gerald ford came back, ronald reagan came back after the disaster. and one assumes that president obama is doing the homework to make sure it happens. >> so johnathan, giving what larry describes here, does this mean the president has to come back and do just a solid debate performance or does he have to blow the socks off this one? >> just a solid performance. you know, he does have a lead, he lost, at most, two points. one to two points out of this last week, so he is going to be going in at this next debate, unless something else happens, which is not likely. you know, with a four-point lead, possibly. so if he can just deliver a solid performance, he will be fine. the danger for him is over compensating. so they talked about al gore, when he was sighing, and demeanor was not good, gore over-compensated again in the third debate, so that is something that people who have had a poor debate performance have to worry about. >> larry, i want to ask you about this very quickly, the next debate style will be town hall. we talked about how the president
at the white house for 33 years. from harry truman to ronald reagan, now the carpenter's grandson is selling about a 1,000 hand me downs, they include a lighter, john f. kennedy's baby pin, and a wooden post from 1814 when the british set fire to the white house. some of the starting bids as high as $12,000. >>> thanks for joining us this morning. ,,,,,,,,
ronald reagan after he lost? he said that mondale failed to land his knockout. not mondale is a liar and a horrible person. >> steve: they took the high road. >> gretchen: it's interesting because the president did say that he made a gaffe, that he wasn't his best performance, but put his other surrogates out there to call mitt romney as liar and he alluded to that himself on the stump. did that stick or did that further irritate voters who hadn't made up their mind yet? that's the big question in some these polls. was it solely the debate performance of mitt romney or was it the reaction as well by the obama camp that turned off voters as we're look? >> steve: the next debate is coming up on thursday. >> brian: i think it's going to be huge. >> steve: i do, too. because it will be the ohm time we'll get to see paul ryan and joe biden. joe biden being sequestered. he's out of commission for six days. meanwhile, paul ryan taking on reporters. here is an exchange with a local guy in detroit from the abc affiliate in flint. >> have a gun problem. this country has a crime problem. not a
at a fundraiser said he seemed a lot like ronald reagan and that's a person a lot of people in the republican party hope that he can replicate of success of. >> thank you for your time. let me bring you back in. why now? if this is something that seems to be resonating with voters at least at these rallies, why wait until 30 days out? why didn't we see this governor romney a month ago? >> i think part of it is that after the democratic convention, we saw a little bit of an uptick in optimism in the electorate. we saw the president's job approval numbers get better. so it's not just enough for republicans to say, things are going poorly, we have to make a change. it has to be mitt romney connecting on a personal level. convincing people that his vision for the next four years is better than the president's vision. just the we're off on the wrong track is not going to work under the new circumstances post convention. >> all right. we're going it take a quick break, "washington post" writer and rothenberg political report stick around. >>> more bad news for drivers, the price at the pump continu
. this race might be a lot like 1980 where it's tight until the end and ronald reagan sweeps past jimmy carter. the fact is in 1980 you didn't have early voting. the fact is this race would have been over -- even romney's own people understood. if he didn't perform well in the first debate the race would have been over. it makes it a lot harder to predict with these rolling dates. >> timing may be everything. good to have you both on. >> great to be here. >> you can catch "morning joe" weekdays starting at 6:00 a.m. eastern time. >>> now let's get a look at the morning's other top stories from tom over at the news desk. >> good morning, tamron and lester. good morning, everyone. a mother and four children are homeless but lucky to be alive. their home in castle rock, colorado, was completely destroyed friday but what officials believe was a natural gas explosion. the woman and kids were hurt, but their injuries were said to be non-life threatening. the surrounding homes have been temporarily uninhabitable. >>> another house was badly damaged when an suv crashed into it. the suv plowed through
talked about ronald reagan and the point that there were details on the table. >> yeah. can i say, though, yes, you guys definitely took the hit and you owned it and said he did not do a good job. but it's not like he did that lying down, karen. you all came back and you said that mitt romney was untruthful, that he had his facts wrong. there was all that, too. >> but he did. my point is that with regard to our own guy's performance, we took it. we said, you know what, he didn't do as well as we would have liked. the truth is that mitt romney did lie. we can't just let these things -- this campaign has been notable for the lack of truthfulness coming from the romney-ryan team. we just can't take that anymore without pushing back on it. >> you know, joe, one observation i made, joe, was that mitt romney looked like he had been an excellent student for the few days leading up to the event, that he had studied certainly prepared. it was almost like he was going through an oral board exam or something and he just shot back with facts and figures and the like. but you know, were all those fact
actual. >> i never been done. >> jack kennedy lowered tax rates and increased growth. ronald reagan -- >> now you're jack kennedy. >> reporter: well, it's a busy day for three of the four guys on the ticket here. you've got mitt romney who starts his day in north carolina, hits virginia and meets up though with paul ryan in the evening for a joint event in ohio. joe biden, he's going to paul ryan's home state in wisconsin. president obama actually has sort of a down day at the white house, though he does have dinner with a bunch of campaign supporters. matt? >> all right, chuck todd, thank you very much. rachel maddow is the left of "the rachel maddow show" on msnbc and going into this joe biden needed to steady the ship and calm the democratic side. did he accomplish that? >> democrats are psyched that he had such a good night. you said at the throb was no clear winner, and it may be, but it was very important for the democrats paul ryan not be the clear winner. most democrats, i don't know about independent winners, probably think that joe biden clearly won >> i think the analysis
that john kennedy had and ronald reagan has. you want to lower the tax base and broaden the base. we have heard many discussions about how many americans are not paying taxes. if we get more people back to work and paying taxes and contributing, that does have a rising tide and does lift all boats. do we want to have a lower tax rate with more people paying it? host: jim is on the republican line from corpus christi, texas. caller: one of your guests made the remark that in ohio, being a purple state, they go republican or democrat. they don't have a lot of passion for politics -- politicians to get the job done. i don't think we should wait forever for a difference to be made. another comment i wanted to make, i am a big believer in the best man will win. that this not just apply to candidates running for reelection. the best companies will survive. i think bailing out these things, intervening, it's probably not a good idea. host: thanks for the call from texas. guest: in terms of the impatience of ohio voters, i think he's right. ohio has been hit disproportionately hard during the mos
